    Disciples is back with a very interesting and lengthy campaign and addictive turn-based battles. A clear recommendation if you are interested in this genre.

    Disciples: Liberation is a fantastic experience. From the engaging story to the deep but approachable Strategy RPG combat, this is the type of game to suck players in until the wee hours of the morning. There aren't many games like Disciples: Liberation on the market these days, especially when the old champion, Might and Magic, has become an autobattler. Disciples: Liberation a welcome breath of fresh air that delivers hope for the future of the Strategy RPG genre.

    Liberation severed all ties with Disciples’ strategic heritage. There’s only one playable faction, and our capital exists in a separate dimension so it never gets attacked. The resources are abundant, units and items are cheap, and fights are easy, so that nothing would distract the player from following the story. [Issue#258, p.58]

    A lot of content, yet too easy for pros. Disciples enthusiasts better prepare for some adjustments.

    Disciples: Liberation is a vast turn-based/ RPG/ city management hybrid that would have been great if some aspects of the game were trimmed down. The core ideas behind the gameplay are implemented well. Skills, units, battle mechanics, dialog choices are classy. On the other hand, the writing is juvenile and the low level of challenge can make the game feel tedious.

    Disciples: Liberation takes us on an epic adventure through a Dark Fantasy world that is filled with conflict and pain. The compelling narrative, characters and the tough decisions you have to make again and again to balance your standing in the four factions are what drives this game forward. The gameplay alone wouldn’t be able to motivate us for the 80 hour adventure, it is just to simple. The combat rarely presents a challenge and with the abundance of resources loses are easily replaced. We still had a lot of fun, since the roleplay aspect of the game works well enough.

    An overly simplified simplification that winks at the audience of casual players displeasing the old ones is at the same time the cross and the delight of the new chapter of Disciples. Other than this, the "role-playing" developments of the plot could have been more effective.

Don't listen to all those haters out there who want a game from the past (the last Disciples game came out 10 years ago and needed to be refreshed). Expand

The combat is decent but repetitive. The graphics and animations are good but the presentation and interface are sub par. The worst part is that there's no character creation, you're forced to play as a female character. There doesn't even seem to be a reason behind it as the story is as boring as they come. You cant even rename the generic units or equip them. Its nice that they tried to blend in different genres but it does none well enough to be worthwhile. The battles are repetitive and bland with tiny arenas so there's not much strategy. Don't waste your time on this, rather play an older title as you're guaranteed to have more fun than playing this title. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Это не Disciples. Это не пошаговая стратегия. Это не тёмное фентези. И оказывается, что и богов тоже нет. Это рпг с пошаговыми боями. Больше всего похоже на Kings Bounty. С атмосферой Diablo. Точнее дешманского клона для телефона. Тут нет и грамма от духа Приверженцев. А есть убого нарисованные, дешёвые модельки, которые не соответствуют юнитам из предыдущих частей. Юниты всех фракций можно купить в одной столице. Лор полностью уничтожен. Пошаговые битвы в духе третьей(не самой лучшей) части. Я надеюсь, что эта поделка провалится. Kalypso закроется и кто-нибудь, когда-нибудь выкупит права и сделает настоящее продолжение - Disciples IV. Expand

    if you played the second part, then the launch of this game can cause irreparable harm to your psyche. Do not think about doing it.

    This is not Disciples. Simple. Dont put fake labels just because you dont have enough strength to break through to the market! Its pure fraud!This is not Disciples. Simple. Dont put fake labels just because you dont have enough strength to break through to the market! Its pure fraud! Try to make "Quake" that is not a FPS or "Civilisation" that is not a turn-based strategy and they bury you alive! Thats what i wanna do now. They try to **** us with our fondness to that serie.
    Imagine, that you have your absolute favourite serie of games, getting totally changed form, and one fresh player telling you, that game is great, giving note 9, because he hasn't seen and doesn't care about previous games from that serie, just because he just started. What's your reaction? Exactly.
    Firstly, give me Disciples and after that, we can talk about grades!
